River Bear At Bear Lake

Get it??? Before I had my baby, I would be up rather late at night and debate whether I should do a blog post or go to bed. Almost always, the post would win out. However, with my days of sleeping in long gone, my bed always wins. Tonight, I am making an exception. There are very few people I would make an exception for. Lindsay and Becca happen to be two of them.

Who are Lindsay and Becca... well they are the lovely ladies pictured above. (The taller ones.) They also happen to be the best kind of friends... soul mate friends if you will. I love them and I love the fact they came to see me (well really they came to see River) and brought their youngest babies for me to see as well. To quote Shag, "We had the most fun."


We headed up north to introduce River to my great loves, Logan and Bear Lake. Seriously, I feel like I'm attached to some kind of umbilical cord when it comes to those two places. I just breathe better when I'm there. I think River does too, because he was a miracle baby for the whole trip. He took long naps and only had one wake up per night. He was happy, happy, happy. I think he was showing off for Hannah and Blakely. (The shorter ones.) Regardless, he made a liar out of me and Becca and Lindsay are pretty sure I have the easiest baby in the world and all of my prior sleep complaints were just me being dramatic. Oh well, what can I do???

Mmmmm.... Mom, you are the best cook. I was so hungry after playing at the lake. I love you. (Sorry about the nursing picture, but since this little guy is going to grow up and figure out I'm a horrible cook one day, I thought I'd document him enjoying a meal I provided while I still can.) By the way, it's been exactly a year since I found out I was pregnant. What a ride!

Don't apologize for the nursing picture--you look so lovely and serene! Which is what motherhood feels like...0.05% of the time...

Happiness. Sitting in the rainy, windy, cold of today, I wish that I were in Logan and the beautiful Bear Lake.

I wish I could have been there with you guys. I am jealous. It looks like we will be coming to UT this summer and I would love to get together than.
